Our partners

Coventry won the UK City of Culture title for many reasons, not least the backing of a wide range of local and regional companies and professional organisations, demonstrating the scale and depth of support from the private sector and the public. The partners below, alongside the 2021 Club, are instrumental to our ambitious plans for Coventry’s year in the spotlight, enabling us to engage national audiences, attract new visitors, and empower every Coventry resident – regardless of age, background or postcode – to reap the benefits of cultural participation.

The Coventry City of Culture Trust is now seeking new partners to collaborate at a regional and strategic level to deliver lasting change for the city. To find out more, or to discuss a partnership that can be tailored to the needs of your organisations, please contact [email protected].

We would like to say a huge thank you to our Bid Supporters. We wouldn’t be here without the help of our Bid Development Sponsors Adient, Birmingham Airport, City Electrical Factors, Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, Friar Gate, Jaguar Land Rover, Listers and SCC.
